I’m not pagan per se,

I’m more agnostic/pantheist lent with a strong respect for the environment/nature.

We’re doing a handfasting ceremony, though we haven’t decided on whether we’ll do one, two or multiple cords.

Depending on what you want for your ceremony there are lots of resources out there. If you’re not feeling the vibe here in regards to paganism check out indie bride or off beat bride [google ’em!]

 

Good luck with your planning. 🙂

I’m not pagan – we are both atheists – but we both have very compassionate, natural personal philosophies that are important to us. I’m fairly certain we’ll be doing a handfasting and the love letter box with a few secular readings. I’ve loved A Practical Wedding for offbeat and nontraditional ideas.

I identify strongly with Pagan and Wiccan beliefs, although I am more of an agnostic. We are including a handfasting ceremony in lieu of a sand/candle/etc. I have also considered getting a local high priest(ess) to officiate. No concrete decision on that yet. FI’s family is Catholic and I think that would really freak them out.

My FH family is completely Pagan. As I follow most of the same beliefs I also believe incorporating some other rituals. We are doing the hand fasting. We will be standing in the center of a star. But doing our own vows with no priest or priestess. It will be held outside on a fall day 🙂

I’m pagan, as is my family.  We’re having a 7 month engagement because I wanted to get married on a new moon and on a Sunday.  April 3 it is!  My aunt is a high priestess who will be marrying us.  🙂

My fiance is Asatru (Norse/viking traditions) and I am a celtic pagan, we are having a traditional handfasting. I’m not sure how it will go over with all my guests, but its our day, not theres. We had our year-and-a-day handfasting on March 30, 2010 and our eternity-and-a-day will be on September 10, 2011. The date was actually purely coincidence, we wanted the Saturday closest to the full moon in September.
